Pinterest

January 24, 2012

I’m obsessed with Pinterest. I heard about a few months ago but I didn’t check it out until my sister encouraged me to do so over the holidays. It’s basically a virtual bulletin board; find an image of something that sparks your interest online and save it by “pinning” the image to a categorized board. It’s also a community where you are able to connect with other Pinterest users. The social networking aspect of it allows you find and share all of those nifty things you see on blogs and websites. The pin links back to the original source. A lot of people use it to plan weddings and other design projects and to collect ideas (for gifting, organization tips, decoration schemes, DIY inspiration, etc). I’ve found a lot of great recipes and food inspiration (see the board Mmmmm) but I’m apparently most interested in designing my imaginary life (refer to board My Someday House).

You can peek at my boards by clicking the little red button on the top lefthand side of this site. If you are already a Pinterest member, feel free to follow me and I’ll follow you back. If not, you can e-mail me and I’ll send you an invite. Otherwise you can request an invite from Pinterest but I think there’s a waiting list. Oh, and it’s free.

I’ll probably be referring to Pinterest in upcoming posts…so now you’ll know what I’m talking about 🙂
